Well,

After 3 1/2 weeks in Hawaii, I'm finally back in Japan. I flew in late last week and I've finally got back to my regular schedule...and cold weather. It good to be home and back reading at Fool.com.

BTW: October is gun awareness month at Narita Airport. They had big banner displaying this at customs. I thought this was kind of funny since guns are illegal in Japan

Lenny

Still in Japan :-)

Welcome back, Lenny! I hope the Hawaiian sun was good to you (he said, jealously!).

Will you be watching the World Series from Japan? I'm guessing they carry it there, but I might be...dropping the ball on that one. ;)

Hmmm...safe sox.

Perhaps that's where Dr. Scholls pads come in.

You know, for the agony of da feet.

(now that's a pun with sole!)

...wasn't that a heel of a thing to say?

...I think they're sole-d at Mickey D's, the Golden Arches.

I've got quite the yen for baseball!

All joking aside, I can get most of the baseball games
here in Japan. Usally they are on around 6:00am in the
morning (for a 5:oopm EDT start).

Of coarse football is even better. Getting up at 2:00am Monday for NFL shows what kind of fan you really are!

Monday night games are on at 10:00am Tuesday...makes for a perferct long lunch.

I would, but unfortunatly my team suffers a disfuction known as premature elimination. They have trouble scoring when it is time to perform.

Ohayo Gozaimasu, Lenny!

I know I botched up the spelling, but I'm hoping I impressed you anyway.

Konichua! Oops! there I go again.

Now what was my point? Oh yeah...it's good to see that puns are alive and well in Japan too. : )

Sayonara! (Now that one I know I spelled correctly!)

If I've toed you once, I've toed you again...

Whenever there is a chance to make a pun, you just sneaker in. Boot you do rise to the occasion.

Well, that's it for now. Just thought I would sandle little note off to you.

I'm impressed...that's more than I knew when I first got here.

Ther first phrase I learned was "O'toiday wa doku desu ka?" (where the toilet>)

Send was, "Beeru kudasai" (Beer Please)

Yep...you see where my priorities were :-)

My biggest problem now is that is I say something in Japanese, they assume I'm 110% fluent and rattle of phrases faster than a speeding bullet train, so I end up using english half the time.

The other problem I have is that my mind will through words from the 3 years of German I took year ago. When I'm trying to answer, I have to stop myself from speaking in a form of broken english/german/japanese.

Oh, when we were in Japan, my wife asked this question in English. We were visiting a supermarket (and are they beautiful in Japan!!) and was directed to where it was.

And was she surprised to find that the ladies room was merely a hole in the floor!!

Made for great conversation though. : )

So Tony.

Huarache going to do the rest of the evening?

Maybe I will go to the kitchen and find some cobbler.

Far cry from the Iomega bathroom she has now, right?

Of course, Tony, if you had held onto that stock another year, you could now 'afford' to give her a Japanese replica bathroom instead.

I could say that the only safe sox is a dead yankee.

But that would be cruel.

So I won't say it.

Oy! Is that ever right!

Had we held on to that stock, we sure wouldn't be feeling flush at all!
